    The Guardian for this meeting was Eos Amaterasu. The comments are by Eos Amaterasu.


    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Eos
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Stevenaia
    Eos Amaterasu: Quite the outfit!
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Ewan
    stevenaia Michinaga: Thank you
    Ewan Bonham: Hi folks..:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I enjoy it
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Ewan
    Eos Amaterasu: We seem to be accumulating pumpkins
    Ewan Bonham: Wonder why..:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I think they are siblings
    stevenaia Michinaga: two of a kind
    Eos Amaterasu: Yeah.... need some more distant cousins
    Eos Amaterasu: and it is different to have the Guardian Hall so close by and visible
    stevenaia Michinaga: and the cafe within walking distance, rather than a very tough fly to get there
    Eos Amaterasu: I like the café's proximity - maybe I'll make more use of it....
    stevenaia Michinaga: Changing geography always has interesting affects
    stevenaia Michinaga: I must have met 3 or so Kira Japan avatars there since it moved
    Eos Amaterasu is also wondering about bringing the 5 Bells Pub closer, and so creating a kind of downtown
    Ewan Bonham: It is really not that much smaller..:)
    Eos Amaterasu: I had the same experience
    Eos Amaterasu: walking into a room full of Japanese kanji
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Ewan Bonham: Good idea because I have never been there..:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I;ve rarely found a soul there except for scheduled events
    stevenaia Michinaga: seems it;s the location, not so much the contents
    Ewan Bonham: What is there?
    stevenaia Michinaga: the cafe
    Eos Amaterasu: various events and Kira workshops are held there
    Ewan Bonham: I think this pavillion is the center...and if other things were closer...they would get more traffic..:)
    Eos Amaterasu: Although I must admit I also liked the optical isolation of the pavilion - no really close by buildings
    Eos Amaterasu: (museum is kind of there, but still not directly visible)
    Eos Amaterasu: interesting how the presence of the hall is affecting my perceptions


    Eos Amaterasu: So how is Being playing with you guys?
    Ewan Bonham: I am afraid I will have to leave...rl...:)
    Eos Amaterasu: Bye Ewan.... l8tr
    stevenaia Michinaga: smiles, it seems to need refreshment now and then (sounds like the constitution)
    stevenaia Michinaga: bye Ewan
    Eos Amaterasu: your being does seem to have gone thru a refreshment
    Eos Amaterasu: (or a constitutional amendment)

    stevenaia Michinaga: that is usually never purposeful, more a wu wei.... this happens through non-action
    stevenaia Michinaga: except for the pumpkin hat, ofcourse
    stevenaia Michinaga: has the retreat made an impression on you?
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, the retreat felt somewhat concentrated
    Eos Amaterasu: Maybe it was because all 6 participants had been at Malta, and so at at least one previous retreat
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, an nice continuation
    Eos Amaterasu: the room we did our sessions in had a feeling like that room at the very end of the 2001: A Space Odyssey movie
    stevenaia Michinaga: you mentined that, in wht sense?
    Eos Amaterasu: high windows, very white, lots of light
    stevenaia Michinaga: aww, ornate
    stevenaia Michinaga: not futuristic
    Eos Amaterasu: and some quality of being out of time
    Eos Amaterasu: or timeless
    Eos Amaterasu: it was both the room in Stuttgart, and the 2001 room
    stevenaia Michinaga: never thought of that movie as the past, at the time it was a movie of the future
    stevenaia Michinaga: plays with time
    Eos Amaterasu: yes.... that room was in some sort of indeterminate time, though it felt like the future to me
    stevenaia Michinaga: how did that add or subtract for the sessiosn, so used to have them occur here
    Eos Amaterasu: the play of SL time together and RL time together is an interesting factor
    Eos Amaterasu: I think some of us felt we could go a bit deeper, for example into the Being side of things (as with Being Seeing)
    Eos Amaterasu: exploring that both together "in session" and out on walks, in the forest and under the big big sky
    Eos Amaterasu: in the woods there can be more a sense of "being seen"
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice how walks in nature quiets and focuses the mind
    Eos Amaterasu: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: I think the environment here can do likewise
    Eos Amaterasu: Let's try Being seeing in the next 90 secs
    stevenaia Michinaga: kk
    Eos Amaterasu: ie, flip from me seeing, to being seeing me and my world


    stevenaia Michinaga: one moment, there was something in wol's log that came to mind
    stevenaia Michinaga: " try to appreciate myself as the object of its awareness."
    stevenaia Michinaga: this struck a nice cord of clearity for me
    Eos Amaterasu: can u say (or finger - paint) more?
    stevenaia Michinaga: isetting that aside for a moment, during the meditation I saw being seeing my avatar, which never happened before
    Eos Amaterasu: camera seeing?
    stevenaia Michinaga: being as my camera setting, something like that, althuogh I had my eyes closed
    stevenaia Michinaga: more dreamlike
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Eden
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Eden!
    Eden Haiku: Hello! Steve, your dress is magnificent, "paradisiac" even :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: but being the object of being awareness as Wol said offeres a different perspective of being seeing
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, paradise took me shopping ... smiles, her favorite shop
    Eos Amaterasu: ahh!
    Eden Haiku: Wol's report is lovely.
    Eos Amaterasu: She creates a framework that others can add to and complement
    stevenaia Michinaga: hope to attend the Retreat session to hear others
    Eos Amaterasu: BTW, the New Orleans retreat is coming up Jan 23rd
    Eos Amaterasu: the retreat bus is the trans world express
    Eden Haiku: ;)
    Eos Amaterasu: going from SL to special situations in RL
    Eos Amaterasu: the seeming identities shift from RL to SL, but some presence continues or transcends them or supports them
    Eos Amaterasu: "water flowing underground": that was an image that came to me while working with awareness within which everything is known or aware....
    Eos Amaterasu: "once in a lifetime...."


    Eden Haiku: Oh I like that image of water flowing underground. Phreatic Being?
    Eos Amaterasu: (from Talking Heads song)
    Eos Amaterasu: Phreatic?
    Eden Haiku: Checking Webster...
    Eden Haiku: Yes, groundwater...
    Eos Amaterasu: Wow!
    Eos Amaterasu: how super appropriate!
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: me seeing is a kind of baby seeing
    Eos Amaterasu: baby then leaps into embrace of Being seeing
    Eos Amaterasu: you can let go
    Eden Haiku: hummm, sound good...
    Eos Amaterasu: it's less work to let Being do the seeing :-)
    Eden Haiku: Baby being embraced by the gaze of being?
    stevenaia Michinaga: like the baby pumpkin
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Eden Haiku: was thinking same :)
    Eos Amaterasu: letting go of driving, controlling seeing
    Eden Haiku: An image of Madonna and child coming to mind
    Eos Amaterasu: into sense of bigger happening, embraced by that, some kind of super trust
    Eos Amaterasu: the visibility of things is Being seeing things
    Eden Haiku: Being rezzing phenomena for babies to play with?
    Eos Amaterasu: but also Being seeing goes beyond subject-object into Being being
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, being seeing is being rezzing!
    Eden Haiku: being being is difficult to grasp...
    Eos Amaterasu: a bouncing baby is being being
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    stevenaia Michinaga: like yin and yang... they can be each other like subject -object
    Eden Haiku: Starting to feel like one as I read on...
    Eden Haiku: baby bouncing in groundwater bath Being :)
    Eos Amaterasu: has rich nourishing quality
    Eden Haiku: yummmm
    Eos Amaterasu: juicy enoughness


    stevenaia Michinaga: I must be going, night
    Eos Amaterasu: /||\

    Eden Haiku: It happened to me once...
